I met a real-life Author!

Last Wednesday we had a real-life Author come to the Library to kick off the Summer Reading Program for the little Downstairs readers. His name is Jim Aylesworth, and he writes books for small people. Helen did a bulletin board about him:

If you look really really close, you can see that he signed the bulletin board for us! Here, let me show you:

The program was Very Big Doings for the Downstairs Staff, and they spent all day putting up displays, setting up the meeting rooms, and preparing packets for the Reading Program. The small people and their mommies and daddies had a Very Good Time during the special program and we are all very glad that Mr. Aylesworth came to visit the Library.

I was Not Invited to the special program (I didn't want to steal the show!), but afterwards, Mr. Aylesworth came upstairs to meet me!

But I did not get a picture! Will you take my word for it?

Recovering from a brush with Greatness,

Hi Tober - that author was so lucky to get to meet you (oh, and you were lucky too, but he was more lucky!) It must be so fun to live in a library.

We believe you, Tober! How could he not want to meet you???

You weren't invited to the meeting? In your own library? That's unbelievable. You are the library cat, the blogger, the star.
